Reyneke Wines appoints Barbara Melck as winemaker
By Christian Eedes, 25 May 2022
Reyneke Wines, situated in Stellenbosch and the industry’s only certified biodynamic producer, has appointed Barbara Melck as winemaker. She replaces Nuschka de Vos, who departed towards the end of last year having been incumbent since December 2015.
Melck has previously served as assistant winemaker for Vinimark since July 2016, working across various cellars in the portfolio, including Twee Jonge Gezellen. She completed her BSc in Viticulture and Oenology in 2014 at Stellenbosch University, following which she spent time working at Simonsig, Rupert & Rothschild, Wind Gap and Morgenhof.
Vinimark’s Rudiger Gretschel remains Reyneke Wines cellarmaster, with owner and viticulturalist Johan Reyneke continuing his involvement in the biodynamic and organic cultivation of the farm’s crop.
